About The Raveness
A modest influence of Léo Ferré and Yann Tiersen (Amélie), and a pre-eminent cocktail of multilingual spoken word, method acting, sound effects and phonograph lo-fi music; attaining global recognition, as did a formal diagnosis of previous alcoholism for la fée verte (2001).

Now sober and liberated, the optimist located solace in her disabilities, and so, 'The Lavinia Volumes,' were announced out of print (2014).
